A phrase to describe Le Club Chasse et Pêche: great mains and excellent desserts! Some say that the interior is not fancy enough, but to me it is beautiful in an old-established conservative kind of way. Also saw quite a few older couples enjoying their dinner date in the restaurant. Lovely.
Here’s what we had:
1. Half dozen oysters
2. Seared scallops with fennel purée and lemon confit
3. Braised piglet risotto with foie gras shavings
4. Roasted duck magret
5. The Hot and Solid Meal
6. Cassis Millefeuille
7. Maple Syrup Parfait
Frozen foie gras was shaved on top of fresh hot risotto. Can you see the melted foie gras shavings in the pic? Pork rind in the middle.
Roasted duck magret locked in five spices on a bed of spaghetti squash. With beets, spelt, bits of speck, and blood orange in light dressing.
First taste came to me as “quite salty,” and then mouthful goodness. No idea whether the shocking saltiness is intentional flavour tease/trick as an ordinary diner!
200g veal fillet to perfection, with serrano ham + ricotta + mushroom Duxelles ravioli, sweet potato puree, browned butter sautéed fiddleheads and wild mushroom. A complete meal with good portion. Everything on the plate was more than delicious.
Cassis Millefeuille with mascarpone cream and apple sauce. Fantastic from the first to last bite.
Parfait made with maple syrup cream (?) and five thin layers of dark chocolate. Cranberry & raspberry sauce on the side. Phenomenal.
Wanted to come back for dinner at their terrace during the summer, unfortunately the terrace in the backyard will not be open this year. Regardless, we will come back to Le Club Chasse et Pêche for the excellent mains and desserts. See you next time!
